Washington-based shipyard Westport LLC announced two significant changes to the company’s management structure recently.
Alex Rogers, who has over 25 years of experience in the yachting industry and been a successful broker with the Westport organisation since 2001, has been appointed to the position of Director of Sales and will be in charge of new construction and brokerage operations worldwide.
Ron Nugent, who has held the position of Westport's global Director of Marketing for nearly 14 years and been involved in the yachting industry for over 20 years, has assumed additional duties as the Director of the company’s sales and service facility in Fort Lauderdale.
Westport’s president, Daryl Wakefield, comments, “We are very pleased to have had Alex and Ron advance to their new positions as they both bring business acumen, as well as extensive knowledge of the Westport brand. Every company likes to be able to promote from within its ranks, and in this instance, the choice was especially gratifying.”
